Beautiful original door set
It's always a pleasure to work on a virtually intact original Victorian door set. This set of panels was very dirty and mainly needed minor repairs, recementing and a very good clean up! The front of the panels has a decorative effect applied to the surface of the lead called 'silverfinger'. This gets a little tired looking after a while and needs renewing. Gold was another popular Victorian colour again applied to the surface of the lead.
